What does 25 years of design experience and relentless determination produce? The answer is the Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter. As the predecessor to the earlier successful Confederate fighters, the P51 Combat Fighter is a true milestone for the company. Thousands of hours of design, engineering and labor has gone into these bikes. The results are nothing short of spectacular.
As with their Hellcat, the P51 Combat Fighter utilizes an astonishing amount of 6061 Billet aircraft grade aluminum. The spine style frame features their signature aluminum tube but they have taken it to the next level. The frame now includes a gas and oil tank both with visible portholes that add to the overall look of the bike. Up front, they got ride of the large tube style forks and went with a more sleek billet aluminum girder setup. These girders, like the rest of bike, are machined from billet 6061 aluminum chunks. To finish off the front of the bike, they designed and machined a billet aluminum bellypan. Oh how i wish I had one on my streetfighter.
Now the heart and soul of this futuristic machine is the massive engine. The engine with boosters 2000+ cubic inches and puts out a claimed 200+ hp is a work of art in itself. The basis of the motor is an S&S X-Wedge OHC 132ci V-Twin. The motor features a crankcase that is machined from a solid billet piece of 6061 aluminum. This allows the engine to be tied into the chassis and act as a structure unit. The coolest piece of the engine is the see through engine case that allows the cog and belt drive system on the cams to be seen.
All in all, the Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter is a futuristic piece of art. The amount of engineering, design and machining that goes into each unit is mind blowing. This is the bike that should be on everyone’s wishlist but don’t get to excited. Confederate is only producing 60 of them, 30 in black and 30 in raw aluminum. You will have to reserve yours and fork over $115,000 for one.
